AND HE CAN PASS... A look into the color, discussion and background that went into Albert Wilson's 52-yard trick pass TD to Jakeem Grant that helped lead Miami to 3-0

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

The 3-0 Miami Dolphins have a 2-game lead in the AFC East. They get chance to prove they can compete with big boys of division (albeit struggling) New England Patriots in Foxboro next Sunday.

Ryan Tannehill today: 17-of-23 for 289 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs, 155.3 rating, 26 rush yards. Tannehill on the season: 54-74, 687 yards, 7 TDs, 2 INTs, 74 rush yards. Dolphins QB1 has completed over 70% of his passes in each of his first 3 games. He's been everything MIA could have expected and more.

The Miami Dolphins locker room knew they had a star in Xavien Howard, but now the world is starting to realize. What should we think about the 3-0 Dolphins as they head to New England to play the bullies of the division next Sunday?

Gase on trick play: 'It was just straight thievery' (0:51)
Xavien Howard changed the game for Dolphins (0:56)

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Xavien Howard's interception off Derek Carr in the fourth quarter increased the Dolphins' chance to win by 40% and was the biggest win probability swing play in the 1 p.m. window today.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

All summer the Dolphins swore they weren't the same old Dolphins and to not discount them because of their lack of stars. Well, it's still early but at 3-0 headed into Foxboro leading the AFC East maybe they were on to something.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Bobby McCain through a busted lip on Xavien Howard and his 2 INTs: "He's one of the best cornerbacks in the league. We been telling people that. We been telling people that for a year. Now they know. He locked down Amari. The league knows now."

Trick plays help unbeaten Dolphins beat Raiders 28-20

Receiver Albert Wilson threw a 52-yard touchdown pass to put the Miami Dolphins ahead midway through the fourth quarter, and then turned a short reception into a 74-yard score that sealed a 28-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins have been outplayed in first half, but their red zone defense (10 points in 3 trips) has kept them within striking distance. It's 10-7 Raiders at halftime. Miami is being outgained 228 yards (on 34 plays) to 126 yards (on 22!! plays). Penalties (5 for 46 yards) and a lack of a running game (8 carries for 14!! yards) have hurt the Dolphins.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Best throw of the year for Ryan Tannehill thus far. Tannehill stuck in the pocket and hits Kenny Stills perfectly on a corner route for a TD in the back of the endzone.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins DL William Hayes injured his right knee while making a sack on Derek Carr. He walked slowly back to the locker room with a significant limp and is questionable to return.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins have missed Reshad Jones on their first two defensive drives. His loss has moved Minkah Fitzpatrick and Bobby McCain into positions they haven't played much this regular season. Raiders attacking Dolphins secondary. Jordy Nelson has 3 catches for 139 yards, TD so far.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

It's 90 degrees here in Miami Gardens. West Coast Raiders traveling cross country for early, hot game typically doesn't bode well. We will see how they respond. Dolphins have to take advantage.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Reshad Jones (shoulder) is inactive. Minkah Fitzpatrick makes his first career start at safety for Jones. Fitzpatrick had been playing slot CB in first two weeks, so here is where his versatility shines. DeVante Parker is active and will make his season debut. Other Dolphins inactives: Luke Falk, David Fales, Tanner McEvoy, Cordrea Tankersley, Kalen Ballage, Zach Sterup.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

It'll be a gametime decision on whether Reshad Jones (shoulder) plays Sunday vs. Raiders. But Adam Gase sounded optimistic and mentioned his improvement through the week "gives us a good chance." DeVante Parker is good to go health-wise. Coaches' decision on whether he will be active, but the expectation is he will make his season debut Sunday.
